Schoolyear (https://schoolyear.com/) | Experienced backend engineer | The Netherlands (Eindhoven) | REMOTE (EU) | Full-time
We help universities simplify digital exams (on-site) by locking down devices and streaming desktop applications. Our job is done when any professor can organize an exam without the help of the IT department and the students don't really notice they're using our app.
We're a team of 9, mostly remote, all over Europe. We're a 3yo bootstrapped startup with 1M+ in ARR.
Challenges we work on: - Peaky traffic. Some weeks we have 50k+ users, other weeks <200. - Native software that has to run smoothly on many different devices ranging from potato laptops to chunky workstations. Up until now we ran on 6k+ different laptop models (300k+ devices in total). - Large, multi-tenant VDI clusters scaling up and down rapidly. - Our users are very non-techsavy while they the underlying infra they're managing is quite complex. Dummy-proof UX is fundamental to our mission.
We try to keep our stack simple: Go, Postgres, Vue, Electron, C++
